Theme: Jesus Is Lord

This quarter has three units that detail the early church’s teaching about Christ. These lessons from Ephesians, Philippians, and   Colossians draw us toward a deeper understanding of who Christ is and what it might mean for us to imitate Christ in our lives

Unit 1: December 2022

Victory in Jesus?

This is a five-lesson study of Ephesians. The emphasis in these lessons is on the exaltation of Christ over all principalities and powers from the beginning to the end of time. The first two lessons proclaim the power of God as revealed in and through Christ. e third lesson considers the image of the Church as the body with Christ as the head. Lesson 4 focuses on Christ as the light of the world. Lesson 5 looks at another metaphor for Christ’s relationship with the Church as its bridegroom.

Unit 2: January 1, 2023

Exalting Christ

is is a four-lesson study of Philippians. The letter to the Philippians encourages believers to follow the pattern laid out for us in Christ and to oppose those who are enemies of Christ’s Cross. 

Unit 3: February 2023

Imitating Jesus?

This is a four-lesson study of Colossians. These lessons have much to say about the importance of the person and work of Christ as Lord of all creation and the author of our peace with God.
